Ongwae elected LREB vice-chair

Kisii Governor James Ongwae has been elected Lake Region Economic bloc Vice-Chairman.

Ongwae takes over from the former Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso who died last year July.

The economic bloc constitutes Kericho, Bomet, Kisii, Migori, Nyamira, Siaya, Busia , Vihiga, Bungoma, Kakamega, Homa Bay and Kisumu.

Ongwae was overwhelmingly elected during the bloc's fifth summit held in Siaya County on Wednesday.

He thanked his colleagues for believing in him and promised  to deliver his best at his new role.

" I am humbled and I sincerely promise to dedicate my time to working with my able colleagues to realise this Economic Bloc's vision." he said

Ongwae's election is expected to relieve the bloc's chairman Wycliffe Oparanya who also doubles up as Council of Governors Chair from huge responsibilities.
